Toby Keith, the country music singer-songwriter behind hits such as “Beer for My Horses,” “Red Solo Cup” and “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue,” passed away, his family announced Tuesday. He was 62.

He passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday evening, according to a statement on his website.

Keith disclosed in June 2022 that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer in fall 2021 and had undergone chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

“You have to have your faith,” Keith said in an interview late last month with Oklahoma outlet News 9. “Cancer is a roller coaster. You just sit here and wait on it to go away — it may not ever go away.”

Keith is survived by his wife of 39 years, three children, his mother, a sister, a brother and four grandchildren, according to The New York Times
